Mother's embrace - Answers to all the nightmares

Today I attempted my hands on creating a snippet out of a prompt on nightmare and mother's embrace. I will look forward to your comments.

Anybody out there, she yelled
can someone not hear me, she cried
I am stuck and scared, she pleaded
this place is very dark and icy cold, she wailed
please help me, she continued

An icy cold nudge lay on her shoulder
she froze but her heart raced
she felt hot and sweaty with fear
her temples damp, her eyes shot with tears
she bellowed her lungs out, leaving her gasping air

A warm embrace rocked her
It felt familiar, she felt home
hush my baby, she heard her mother say
it's over, it's gone, her mother pacified
Open your eyes, her mother assured
hush my baby hush, you are safe, continued her mother.

Passion and Interest Matters; No Age Bar

Today I am going to share an inspiring story. I am writing it here only for you to read it, this blog post is live for you to know that there things that are not impossible if you put your mind and soul into it. At this juncture, when time is abundant, you have the opportunity to create possibilities and find your calling. Without much further ado, let me start. 

Yesterday early in the morning I had received a mail from a good friend of mine. He is an elderly person who plays an essential role in my life presently. It was sometime in October or November he expressed his interest to take up writing as a regular activity. He was quite earnest and wanted to try his luck on writing. When I asked the reason for this enthusiasm, he replied that his experiences and opinions might be of some help to youngsters of my age and others who generally like reading personal essays. Only one problem seemed to bother him; he was too shy to start. 

Few months went by, and we both forgot about this conversation. It was only yesterday I understood my that friend kick-started his interest in writing. I congratulated him over a phone in the evening same day. He was quite thrilled about it and made a request if I could help him with a little bit of editing and feedback. I obliged because his request meant a lot to me. As far as I know him, he always keeps to himself and only mingles with people whom he considers close to him. I am lucky I am one among those 'close people'. There is a lot to learn from him from his vast experiences about life, culture, people, and spiritual.

Late in the night, I opened my e-mail to read and edit my friend's article. To my surprise, he sent me his second article. Looks like my friend is already stepped on an accelerator to become a writer. I quickly hit the download button on both the article document and started my reading and editing business. I must say he is an excellent writer and not what he claims to be - an amateur. I loved reading his experiences he has recorded in the document titled as Twin City. I was intrigued by his thought process behind his another article on Covid-19. He articulated himself so well and had a confident tone in his storytelling. I did what he requested me to do and replied to his mail with the revised draft of the article with only minor edits.

I am impressed with my friend's action on his passion and interest to write at this age when most of the youngsters are finding themselves convoluted on the web of procrastination. Everybody realises that they have their calling somewhere else and not where they currently are and yet, they give reasons for not starting. Some are lost in the unknown path to recognise their calling. This includes me, as well. Though I set this blog and paid for it, never used its full potential until the lockdown was announced.

My friend realised and grabbed an opportunity, and I am glad that lockdown is helping him kindle with his passion and interest in written words. He is not panicking; instead, he is channelling his strengths and using his free time towards things that he might not have attempted otherwise. I am glad my old friend is setting an example.

Like I said in the beginning, we have a lot of time in our hand. We are confined to spaces and monotony has kicked in our life already. Before we lose it, why not try our hands that we always wanted to by sitting at our comfort zone, just like my friend?
